SBEBB Feathered Friends exchange for Edgar

I just heard from Edgar that he got the package I sent him for the SBEBB Feathered Friends exchange. I had a really hard time trying to decide what I wanted to stitch for him, I know he really likes quaker designs but I couldn't find anything quaker related in my stash so I searched and searched and searched online for a bird design I thought might appeal to him and found this freebie by French designer Anne R. from Tournicoton called "Petit Points". I stitched it on 36ct White Edinbourgh Linen one over two with a hand- dyed thread that Aniza generously sent me a few month ago (it's hand dyed by Aniza) and finished it as a pinkeep. The fabric you see in the picture below is the one I used for the back, I think it goes perfect with the color of thread and ribbons I used :) ...I'm so glad Edgar likes it!

Edgar ya recibio el paquete que le envie para el intercambio "Feathered Friends" del foro SBEBB cuyo tema era bordar algun diseño con aves en el. Se me hizo super dificil encontrar el diseño adecuado para bordarle a Edgar, se que a el le gustan mucho los diseños quaker y yo simplemente no podia encontrar nada relacionado al quaker entre mis cosas, asi que busque y busque y busque en la web algun diseño adecuado para este intercambio pero que a la vez le gustara a el y encontre este freebie de la diseñadora francesa Anne R llamado "Petit Points". Lo borde sobre lino 36 ct Edinbourgh (uno sobre dos) con un hilo teñido a mano que generosamente me obsequio Aniza hace algunos meses (son hilos teñidos por la propia Aniza) y lo termine como pinkeep. La tela que ven en la foto es la que use para la parte trasera del pinkeep y me parece que va perfecto con el color de hilo y cintas que use :) ...que bueno que a Edgar le gusta!

Carla, this is absolutely beautiful!!!
I was thinking to stitch this with red thread, but I definitely will try to stitch with over dyed thread, like you!
It's so stunning, and I'm sure Edgar will treasure it for a long time!
